'Bewitched' Movie Officially In The Works At Sony

It seems like streaming networks are just begging to reboot any TV or movie series from the '80s and '90s at any chance they get. The "re-imagining" of many of these cult classic films isn't sitting right with a lot of people, myself included. However, I'm not always so negative β€” I promise!

Sometimes, however, a project doesn't actually sound all that bad. Take, for example, the upcoming Bewitched film, which was just announced to be officially in the works!

*Bewitched* was the cult classic TV show of the late '60s, early '70s.

While I believe everything was better back then, you do have to admit there was something magical about retro television. Gosh, can you believe shows from our childhood are officially retro? Makes me feel soooo YOUNG!

But seriously, *Bewitched* deserves all the nostalgia and praise it receives — I'm honestly surprised this movie wasn't announced sooner.

Well, there was that Nora Efron film starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell from 2005, but let's just forget about that.

The new film comes from producers John Davis and John Fox, with a script written by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett. If those names mean nothing to you, just trust me β€”it's an all-star lineup.

According to Deadline, this film adaptation will be totally different than the aforementioned 2005 film.

"Its jumping-off point is the series, in which a witch marries an advertising exec and then tries to hide her powers and her crazy relatives who drop in often," the publication reports.

A lot of fans are convinced the success of WandaVision has something to do with the upcoming film.

Deadline reports that "The perfect TV series homemaker facade was used effectively in the recent WandaVision series, and the premise β€” the wife who has a wild life she mostly hides from her briefcase-toting husband β€” is one that lends itself well to a contemporary setting and the exploration of what makes a modern-day marriage, with all its secrets. Throw in the origins of the witch and her powerful relatives, and those out to do her harm, and there is plenty of creative room here."

Needless to say, those same fans are demanding Elizabeth Olsen play Samantha Stephens.

I hope this project will at least appease those who love both Bewitched and WandaVision!
